Hello! My name is Natacha. I am French but have spent many of the past 10 years living and travelling in English-speaking countries (Ireland, England, Canada, Australia and New Zealand). During those travels, I have often had the occasion to volunteer in hostels, farms or families, with workaway or other similar websites.
My steps are now bringing me to Argentina for a year (with some frequent and extended stays in Chile thrown in the mix). I am looking forward to discover as much of what those countries have to offer and I know from experience that volunteering is the best way to discover different aspects of a country and its people.
I have volunteered in hostels in various places (Panama, Guatemala) but also worked for 8 months in a hostel in England, helping with cleaning, general maintenance, reception, welcoming the guests, helping them with tours, doing the check-outs, serving breakfasts and dinners.
In general, I have a lot of experience in customer care, having worked in that branch whenever possible : I worked as a waitress for 6 months in New Zealand, and work in customer services whenever I am back in Europe.
I have also often worked with animals on farms, feeding them, cleaning their environment.
And other than traveling, I enjoy hiking a LOT. And when I am not walking outside for hours, I like to chill reading a good book (or get annoyed at a bad one) and doing crochet like a grandma. It's always fun to cary wool in your backpack!

I am also used to working with animals in farms.
